Tatsuuma Honke Brewing Company

Hyogo Prefecture

The name of the brewery Hakushika, literally meaning "White Deer" came from the ancient Chinese mythology that tells a story about longevity during the Tang Dynasty. Hakushika grows high-quality Yamadanishiki rice carefully by asking contract farmers in Hyogo. All Yamadanishiki used by Hakushika is grown locally in the same prefecture.  In 1662 (Yoshifumi 2 years), at the time of 4th generation shogun of Tokugawa family, Yoshizaemon dug a well in Nishinomiya around the Shogun castle and found the quality water that he started brewing sake with. Even after losing most of the facility during the war, Hakushika continues to pass down the skills from Tamba Toji, professional brewing masters from over 300 years ago.
